Love is Heaven

Overworked and exhausted through caring for her ailing father, the demurely lovely Delysia Langford goes to the family's London house for a well-deserved rest.
But her wayward and beautiful sister, Fleur, has other ideas for her. She has fallen deeply in love with Timothy, Lord Sheldon, but he is already reluctantly engaged through intense pressure from his family to be married to the daughter of the Duke of Dorset.
So Fleur and Tim plan to elope. And so determined is Tim's uncle, the vastly rich Magnus Fane, a terrifying man people call the 'Demon King', to stop them that he kidnaps Fleur.
Little does he know, it is actually Delysia who his servants have abducted from the London house by mistake.
And when she is subjected to the contempt that Magnus Fane regards her sister with, Delysia resolves to keep up the pretence that she is Fleur so giving her sister time to run away to France with Tim to be married. And giving herself a chance to reverse the dreadful impression that he has formed of Fleur from reports by his relations.
But when Delysia is confronted by the awe-inspiring and arrogant Demon King, he turns out to be an extremely handsome young man as well as a highly successful entrepreneur, having made his fortune in the East.
And slowly but surely she is no longer held hostage, but simply following her heart as mutual hatred in some magical way turns out to be love.

You know exactly what will happen. Lord Sheldon will be forced to marry the girl to whom he is engaged and will be forgiven for anything else he has done, while Fleur will have to take all the blame and all the abuse earned by their behaviour will be heaped on her head.” - typical...

“The answer to that is ‘yes’!” he replied. “There are certain standards of behaviour that any decent man will expect from his wife and you, Miss Langford, conform to none of them!” - but that behaviour is accepted for men...

“I do not acknowledge it!” Magnus Fane snapped. “For people who are self-controlled and who wish to behave honourably, love is not a sufficient excuse for doing what is wrong and antisocial.” - while 'whoring' around if one is married is fine?...

"As he spoke, he brought down the whip he held in his right hand sharply across her shoulders. She gave a little scream of protest and as she did so he threw his whip onto the ground, dismounted and pulled her roughly into his arms....And his lips came down on hers.“I can only say that I am sorry,” Magnus said softly, “but I wanted you so desperately and I had forced myself to believe all the lies that I had been told about you.” - So he hits her, manhandles her, almost rapes her because he thought she had loose morals but they end up together... 🤔
